I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under (insert your deity here) ...
Surely, hearts around the nation pulsed a little faster this weekend. On the verge of network premiere week, who wouldn't be a little excited? Well, probably the majority of the cable-consuming world, whose entertainment hungers are more than satiated by hundreds of specialty channels, HBO, Showtime, and Cinemax.

Mark Twain writing to someone who had head that the writer was dead declared, "Reports of my death has been greatly exaggerated." And at the last newspaper I worked at (and I use the term 'newspaper' advisedly since their goal is to see how much news they can keep out of the paper), a writer not thinking made a reference to that town's native son Clement Haynesworth and called him the late Clement Haynesworth.

India is 1-year-old Siamese mix (with possibly a little Ragdoll thrown in too). She has been spayed and all vaccinations are current. India was rescued from Animal Control. She is unquestionably, one of the sweetest cats to have ever come through the shelter doors. She has a very meek, quiet personality and she loves to be held and cuddled. Though a little bit frightened of their sometimes rowdy behavior, she gets along well with the other cats at the shelter. For anyone looking for a true "lap cat" - India would be the perfect choice. For more information about how to adopt India, please call Clayton County Humane Society at (770) 471-9436. Visit www.claytoncountyhumane.org to see other animals available for adoption.

The highway south to Mobile was clear of physical damage, but more than a week after the storm there were still signs that we were heading into Hurricane Katrina country.
